The Main Endemics of the Baikal Region

The endemics of Lake Baikal are the animals living only in this region. According to the scientific data, about 800 inhabitants of the lake out of 1200 are endemics. The most part of them are protected and secure, but, alas, the Red Book of the lake is getting thicker with every year.

Currently the most famous endemic of the lake are considered ringed seal, omul and viviparous Baikal oilfish (golomyanka). Our infographics will tell you about other inhabitants of the lake found only there and nowhere else in the world.
